November 1, 2021

Do you have any history for your activities at outpost, sectional, district, regional, or national events for 2021 or before? We would love to get a copy and get it posted on the history site. Whether is it Pow Wow packets, FCF packets, posters, documents, patch scans, staff listings, etc. All history for your district and section can be posted. Please contact Mark Oliver and it will get updated quickly. We ask that patch scans/photos be a minimum resolution of 300x300. If you take a photo, please put one patch per picture and take the photo close to the patch so we get it up close.

FCF National Outstanding Service


The Outstanding FCF Service Award is a recognition bestowed upon Frontiersmen Camping Fellowship members who have shown exemplary service to the Fellowship. Any member of FCF is eligible to be recommended for the Outstanding FCF Service Award for truly embodying the motto of FCF—To Give and to Serve. It is awarded by the National FCF Action Team.
A person making the recommendation must be an FCF member in good standing with his Chapter. The person being recommended shall not be informed of his recommendation to prevent embarrassment should the application be declined. In awarding the Outstanding FCF Service Award, the National FCF Action Team intends to recognize members for one of the following:
  • For service, dedication, and devotion to FCF purposes;
  • For extraordinary service to FCF beyond the duties attributed to a member’s position in the organization;
  • For extraordinary dedication to the Trapper’s Brigade program;
  • For extraordinary dedication to Pathfinders;
  • For a selfless act that advances the goals of FCF, or
  • For a selfless act that significantly benefits another FCF member.
These could be single acts, a series of deeds, or a lifetime given for service to others. If, in the eyes of the person making the recommendation, the person being recommended had exhibited exemplary conduct that would serve as inspiration to others, then he may qualify should the action team concur. The acts may be unheralded or they may command headlines.
